It is with sadness that we announce the passing of ex Prestwich cricketer and legendary bowler Stan Thompson who played from 1961 to 1964.

In those 4 years he took 269 wickets with a remarkable 152 in his last season. The only other player to pass 100 wickets in a season is current 1st team player Andy Bradley who took 104 in 2011.

Our thoughts are with Stan’s family at this sad time.
